Welcome to my last day of Growing in Unity.
I started today's project with this monoprint.
I love the color and movement of the circles on this print..
I have been saying to myself, "One of these days I will make an ATC coin" Well today was that day. An ATC or Artist Trading Card coin is a circle that is 2.5". I die cut mine out of the monoprint.
I stamped without masking the clock and flowers from these sets:
It didn't matter to me that the hands of the clock were off center on all the coins. I think it adds more interest that way.
I painted the flowers and leaves with white acrylic paint.
I watercolored the flowers and the leaves. I added white highlights with a white gel pen. I outlined the flowers with a black ink pen.
I stamped the butterfly several times onto white cardstock. I then watercolored them. The following photos show how I paint them to get a realistic look. I start with yellow add orange and then red and then I sprayed them with water to let the colors blend.
I outlined the coins with black ink. I added white highlights to the flowers and clock hand with a white gel pen. I also added splatters with gold metallic paint. I put a rhinestone on clock hands.
I also added glitter to centers of the flowers.
Coin # 1
I die cut 4 more circles and stamped this bible scripture on them. I also signed and dated them with MM for Mississippi McGyver.
Well that concludes my projects for Growing in Unity. Make sure you leave a comment. I will be picking winners from the comments on Monday 7/29/19.
